Harvey Weinstein has been transferred to Rikers Island Jail in New York City, after he underwent heart surgery.

This comes after the ex-movie mogul was found guilty of two sexual assaults during his trial last month. 

After his trial on February 25, Weinstein complained of chest pains and was taken to the hospital for a stent implant. 

The former film producer faces up to 25 years in prison and is due to be sentenced on March 11.
